Otters in the Wetlands.. I think

Walking the wetlands yesterday we spotted these cute little guys playing away.
First thought they were beavers, as there's lots of them around.
I snapped some really quick pics before they wandered off.
Later we realized they weren't beavers at all which, like.. of course not!
So then they must be otters?  Not totally sure, but that's our best guess.
What do you think.. Otters?

The head looks more like a beaver to me but then the last one I saw was in a zoo twenty years ago.

Oh ya that's an otter allright. That one looking straight at the camera with that cheeky grin is all otter. How cute!!!

I am not sure if it is an otter or a beaver but you captured the moment of it realizing the human presence beautifully.

Beaver have Buck teeth, that they use to cut down trees. They eat the bark as food.
